The Government is committed to ensuring that the needs of Welsh language speakers are recognised and met, and to enabling Welsh speakers to interact fully with its services. The Welsh Language Act does not require government departments to prepare Welsh Language Schemes. However, the Government aims to provide services in Welsh when it is both appropriate and reasonably practicable to do so.

This department has provided publications on GOV.UK in both English and Welsh including the White Paper on the United Kingdom’s exit from and new partnership with the European Union and the White Paper on Legislating for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.
